ADEPT enables UNC Business Essentials team members to extend access to high-quality curriculum through a technology solution.
McKinney, Texas (PRWEB) April 14, 2009
Avalon Consulting, LLC, a leading provider of Enterprise Web Presence Solutions, partnered with The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Executive Development at Kenan-Flagler Business School to offer non-business majors an opportunity to supplement their education with critical business skills and knowledge. The UNC Business Essentials Certificate Program, http://www.uncbusinessessentials.com, formally launched on April 1, was designed and built in a cooperative effort that combined UNC Kenan-Flagler's subject matter expertise and curriculum knowledge with Avalon's expert e-Learning development capabilities.
Avalon's specialized expertise in Academic e-Learning strategies, methods, and development along with its track record of successful solutions implementations at other major institutions of higher learning proved critical to UNC Executive Development's success in creating the compelling certificate program.
"Our selection of Avalon Consulting, LLC, as our services partner, along with the use of ADEPT, has proven to be one of the most important decisions supporting our successful launch of UNC Business Essentials," stated Susan Cates, president of UNC Executive Development at Kenan-Flagler Business School.
Using ADEPT, a methodology which helps subject matter experts design online courseware that is proven to enhance learner retention and knowledge transfer, Avalon provided the framework for the UNC Business Essentials team to develop an online program of exceptional quality commensurate with its top-ranked Business School. Additionally, ADEPT empowers UNC Business Essentials with the foundation necessary to independently create subsequent online offerings of a consistent and high quality.
"Creating effective e-Learning takes as much, if not more, effort to develop than traditional classroom training," said Deneena Lanius, e-Learning Strategist at Avalon. "ADEPT enables UNC Business Essentials team members to extend access to high-quality curriculum through a technology solution."
